    Anyone remember that Dralnu's Crusade contest? Now that 7th ed. has arrived and Apocalypse is hitting the stores in few weeks, I'll providing you with an updated Goblin.dec :)

    The overall quality of Goblins has improved quite a bit with Goblin Raider, Chariot and Legionnaire.
    I also included some Apocalypse spells like Order/Chaos (removing a nasty attacker or dealing the killing blow sounds good to me) and the nearly always useful Vindicate.

    Here's my decklist:

    Red:
    4 Seal of Fire
    4 Raging Goblin
    4 Goblin Raider
    4 Goblin Chariot
    4 Goblin King
    4 Goblin Ringleader

    Gold/Split:
    4 Goblin Legionnaire
    2 Terminate
    4 Dralnu's Crusade
    2 Vindicate
    2 Order/Chaos

    Lands:
    10 Mountains
    4 Battlefield Forge
    4 Sulfurous Springs
    4 Caves of Koilos

    no s/b as of yet.
    Have fun!

    what do you think of this deck?
  3. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    It looks OK, but don't expect to be able to cast a goblin every turn very easily with all the gold cards.
  4. Landkiller CPA Menace

    Ok. Colors that are splashes should have a higher average cc or a lower average cc than the main color.

    Keeping in mind your 8 black mana sources, you often won't be able to play a second turn terminate (indeed, odds favor your not doing so as you are busy droppin' Goblins.)

    So, I recommend you replace Terminate with Void. I know terminate has it's place, but we'll look into that in a second.

    Also, it seems that a deck using a creature swarm in Red, Black, and White would do well to look into Fervent Charge. Try no more than 2, though.

    For sideboard, this is a good first draft.

    4 Terminates (those Spiritmongers)
    4 Dodecapod (discard decks...this slot may not be needed, depending on your ability to beat a discard deck)
    4 Gerrard's Verdict (control decks)
    3 Orim's Thunder (you have white mana. And what if they drop Teferi's Moat?)
